Default Re: D Day 1944 - 2014

Some guys Dad's jumped into Normandy before the landing craft arrived. Fortunately into a field, far from St. Mere Egilise!
Salmontogue, Your Dad was like most soldiers - won't talk about combat and the horrors they saw. My father-in-law was in the South Pacific, in FIVE island invasions. The last couple of weeks of his life while hospitalized he finally talked to me about it, he cried a lot.
